In addition to being a book of the year finalist for ForeWord Magazine, Katie Monnin's Teaching Graphic Novels (Maupin House) has now also been named a finalist for the Association of Educational Publishers' Distinguished Achievement Awards for grades Curriculum & Instruction, grades 6-8.
I'm so happy to call Katie and colleague and friend and to be working with her on several GN-related projects, one of which is also slated for release from Maupin House, which really knows how to market its books and to make sure people take note of their excellent quality. Teaching Graphic Novels deconstructs the form so thoroughly for teachers, it is no wonder it is being honored. I like it so much, I've got two copies on my shelves!
Rock on, Katie!
